Shockingly sharp images at all apertures, even at ƒ/1.8, with excellent flatness of field and good control over chromatic aberration, distortion and vignetting make this lens a no-brainer for users of APS-C cameras looking to upgrade from their kit lens.

Another factor making the relatively short focal length range more palatable is the image quality this lens delivers. Especially at f/1.8 where this lens delivers very good sharpness across the entire frame. Sharpness is slightly better at the wide end than the long end, but f/1.8 real life images from both ends look good.

The great image quality seals the deal for the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens. The results that this lens is capable of delivering are impressive.

DPREVIEW is just as impressed, but pointed out a traditional Sigma issue, it’s auto-focus, stating:

Its relatively narrow zoom range is undeniably a little restrictive, but on the other hand, the image quality it can offer over that range is absolutely stellar. It’s let down a little by inconsistent autofocus, which makes it difficult to get consistently sharp results every time when shooting wide open.

The big question is ‘Should I Buy This’ and that is somewhat of a tough question. Is it worth it? Absolutely the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 is worth every penny bringing top of the line build quality, amazingly wide apertures, zoom abilities, and fast autofocus for only $799.
